  • MAKER prerequisites and dependencies

    Hello all,

    I'm a biologist trying to be a bioinformatician, and I'm doing a local installation of MAKER on my own, which requires a bunch of perl modules (no problem) and external programs including RepeatMasker, BLAST, etc. While I'm not having issues with getting perl modules/dependencies for any of these programs (although it seems like all I've done for a few days), I'm clueless as to how to make MAKER recognize that I've installed these programs on my computer (power mac with 32gb ram- sufficient for what I'm doing).

    How do I get MAKER to "see" BLAST? Et cetera? I suspect this is a common-UNIX-knowledge thing that I don't know because I don't have formal training in the area. Is there a file in the maker directory where I specify the directory locations of the external programs? I haven't been able to find one.

    Thanks very much for your help!

    EDIT: I solved my problem by continuing with the installation, which I thought would make my situation worse based on my reading of the README. Fortunately this wasn't so. After I proceeded with Build.PL I was able to use the Build command to download the external programs, which didn't work before. Obvious now, but I didn't realize that I would have to run Build.PL to completion at least once to make the commands from that perl script usable. Eesh. In any case, I ended up downloading all of the materials again, which is just one of the many self-teaching moments of this afternoon for me.

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
